Friday Fun Find/HIWWI: Equipment Earl Retro Dot Blouse


TGIF, am I right, Cupcult??? I'm getting crazy here combining two features in one, but this is MY blog and as I've said before, I do what I want. So this week, I bring you the exciting fan favorite from my "Which Equipment Blouse Should I Buy?" poll. You'll be happy to know that I did, indeed, purchase the very shirt that you all voted on!! Unless of course, you chose a different top, in which case, you're S.O.L. So yeah, this is a HIWWI, but it's also my Friday Fun Find this week. 

Since this is a top I will actually have in my closet imminently, I thought it only fair to build an outfit around things I actually have in my closet. (I'll also follow up with an outfit post of me in said outfit). Exciting, right? I feel like this is a reality show waiting to happen: What Should Melissa Wear? And each week, I am obligated to only wear outfits that my legions of fans deem apropos, no matter how outrageous, uncomfortable, or just straight up tacky they might be. You'd watch it, right? I mean, I would. Then again, I recommend Dance Moms and RuPaul's Drag Race to everyone I know, so my judgment could be questionable.

When I bought this top, I knew the navy polka dots would look particularly springy and precious with a pink pant, which is why I'll be wearing these jeans:

And, I'm sorry, but this outfit is DYING for my Sam Edelman Novato heels (finally back in stock!) in pink blush:

Oh, and since we're on the topic of bad ass ways to incorporate gold into a look, I think the last flourish this look needs is a plain, thin gold band, just like this one:

And you better believe I'll be sporting an equally srpingy color on my little-girl-nails. It seems like this is the only shade that makes sense:

Dude...I feel pret-tay good about this look. I feel even better knowing I'll actually be sporting it very soon. 

What do you think? Am I doing your vote justice? Do you feel cheated that I'm combining two posts in one???

I need to see pics of you in actual HIWWI outfits someday!!!! Particularly ones that involve pink jeans. I did not vote for this shirt, I tried to make you go brighter and tackier as is my way, but I support your decision to wear dots.
